Unveiling the True Impact: FedEx and UPS 2024 Rate Increases

In the dynamic world of shipping, the annual General Rate Increases (GRIs) announced by major carriers like FedEx and UPS can have a profound impact on businesses. While the carriers tout a 5.9% increase for 2024, a closer look reveals a more complex reality.

Unmasking the Numbers
Contrary to the advertised figures, Reveel’s recent analysis delves into the true implications for businesses. The average FedEx customer is expected to see an 8.17% hike, while UPS customers might face a 7.72% increase in shipping costs in the coming year.

Beyond the Surface
This revelation isn’t new. Previous analyses by Reveel have consistently exposed a significant gap between the published rate card increases and the actual cost burdens shouldered by businesses.

Josh Dunham, CEO of Reveel, emphasizes the transformative power of advanced data science. This technology unravels hidden price increases, bringing transparency to the forefront and enabling businesses to make informed, proactive decisions.

Shippers’ Strategic Advantage
